The Battle for New Bern

Record #:
The Union Army’s success in capturing New Bern in 1862 involved famous military men such as General Ambrose Burnside. The Confederate general presiding over the troop for this famous battle was Lawrence Branch. The latter, though perhaps lesser known in history books, was celebrated as equally important through the CSA monument in Cedar Grove Cemetery.
